A request charge of 80p (50p concessionary) is charged for books and audio books. If we do not have the item in stock it can still be requested. A further charge of £5 will apply if we borrow the item from another library service in the UK or abroad.


If you are a Derbyshire Library member you can also download free eBooks from our website, including fiction, non fiction and children's books.
